Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Post & Schell

    PHILADELPHIA, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Drawing on their diverse national
 health law practice in approximately 40 states, three partners at
 Post & Schell have recently written a comprehensive state-specific health law
 and litigation reference book covering Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  "Health
 Law and Litigation in Pennsylvania and New Jersey" is designed to give
 practical, real-world information and guidance to CEOs, CFOs, compliance
 officers, general counsel, human resource professionals and members of the
 boards of trustees of hospitals, and to other institutional providers as well.
     The two-volume, ten-chapter book was written by Brian M. Peters, Chair of
 the Health Law Department of the Philadelphia-based law firm of Post & Schell,
 along with partners Wendy C. Maneval and Jonathan B. Sprague. The authors drew
 from their more than 50 years combined experience handling national healthcare
 litigation, transactional, compliance, and appellate matters, in the
 representation of hospitals, integrated delivery systems, managed care
 organizations, physician-hospital organizations, physicians, home health care
 providers and durable medical equipment providers.
     The book not only provides extensive discussion of state-specific
 healthcare issues, but also provides comprehensive information on the many
 federal laws, regulations and cases that impact on healthcare providers.
     "The American healthcare system is one of the most complex and rapidly
 evolving industries in the United States today.  This book distills our
 extensive national health law and litigation experience and serves as an
 important resource and reference tool for healthcare and compliance
 executives, as well as for attorneys who practice in the health law field,"
 Brian Peters said.
     The first volume contains an introduction of the overall healthcare
 system, which includes the education and licensing of physicians, the
 structure and licensing of hospitals, the accountability of health care
 providers and a practical discussion of the complex ethical issues that arise
 in the healthcare context.
     The second volume focuses on the litigation process and issues.  It begins
 with an overall explanation of the attorney's role in the litigation process
 from pleadings to post-trial.  Additional subjects discussed extensively
 include healthcare antitrust laws and case studies, state and federal
 employment laws, healthcare fraud and abuse laws, compliance and state
 liability issues.
     "Our goal in writing this book was to assist healthcare law practitioners,
 executives and physicians in understanding the complex web of healthcare
 issues confronting them today, thereby assisting them in making informed
 decisions," Wendy Maneval said.
     Published by West Group, the nation's premier law book publisher, "Health
 Law and Litigation in Pennsylvania and New Jersey," can be ordered by calling
